Welcome to our new job seeker video series! We're going to walk you through the steps on how to find a job. Make sure to keep checking this blog and subscribe to our YouTube channel, where we will be posting new videos over the next few months.
We love to hear success stories from our members who say Snagajob helped them find their job, but it really pains us to hear that some of you have applied to dozens of positions and aren't hearing anything back.
Here are a few reasons you may not be hearing back from employers:
- You made a spelling mistake. Employers tell us this is their biggest frustration when reviewing applications. This is important because it shows your attention to detail. They may think that if you are careless on your applications, you may be careless on the job.
- Your email address is inappropriate. This seems really small but your email address is how you present yourself over the Internet to employers. If you think your email address may be inappropriate, change it to a safer option, such as your name. It is better to be safe than sorry!
- You’re not following up on your applications. You've gone through the entire application process but haven't contacted the employer to see the status of the job. This is a critical step that is often overlooked. Following up on your application can really set you apart from your competition.
We'll go more in-depth to each of these three reasons throughout our video series. Stay tuned!
